In the years between Episode III and the Disney Anouncement, most of the speculation of what would become of Star Wars next (at least in the live action world) was a TV series we were eventually told (along with the Video Game) would be "1313" and deal with the Seedy Underworld of Star Wars, and specifically the Criminal Networks of Courascant. However, obviously at the same time they were working on this, they were secretly planning the sequel Trilogy. My question is, was "1313" ever planned to air, or was it a ruse to get people to work on the years worth of design work that goes into these movies. Everything from Charcter and location designs to animatics could be worked out under the guise of this production without anyone realizing they were actually prepping for a new trillogy. Supposedly their are 50 one hour episodes scripted, but could these have also been (unbeknownst to the authors) audition scripts for who would be writing the sequels? Does anyone know if Michael Arnt submitted a script. Another possibility is that Lucas's interest in going forward with the Sequels came about after his enjoyment on working on the Clone Wars, and a frusteration with being inable to actually make "1313" (for the price he wanted), so he decided to leave television behind for the cinemaplex again. At the very least, I am sure there will be some cross pollenization of designs, but was it a huge Lucasfilm Black Ops plan, or a lost chapter of Star Wars design?
